California car accidents: Woman and 5 dogs killed in police chase

Sometimes when a person commits a crime, whether intentionally or unintentionally, the initial act sets off a series of events leading to an unexpected conclusion with very serious consequences. For example, car accidents resulting from police chases are not uncommon, and because of the high speeds involved, sometimes cause fatalities. In a recent example, a California woman and five dogs were killed in a crash in Long Beach.

Car accidents sometimes happen very close to home

Everyone knows that tragedy can strike at any time during travel anywhere, particularly when a person is in a vehicle of any sort sharing roadways with other vehicles. However, many people assume that once they are very close to their destination, they are likely then safe from harm. Unfortunately, this assumption is not always accurate since car accidents can happen at any time. As a horrific example of this fact, two California men were killed in a hit-and-run accident as they approached their home.

California car accidents: 8 pedestrians injured at crosswalk

Most California drivers spend their time behind the wheel of a car focusing on avoiding a collision with other vehicles, pedestrians or inanimate objects. However, for whatever reason, occasionally a driver appears to do the exact opposite and deliberately crashes into someone or something. Car accidents of this type are rare, but police suspect this may have been what happened in a suburb of San Jose. The driver is now charged with eight counts of attempted murder.

California car accidents: 1 dead, 1 injured in 3-vehicle crash

Instead of celebrating renewed life at Easter, the family of one man in California is likely mourning their loss. However, they may have to deal with more than that because the driver who died may have caused the accident. As with the case with all car accidents that result in serious injury to others and the driver at fault was killed, his or her estate can face lawsuits from those adversely affected in an attempt to recover damages.

Fatal car accidents can result from drivers' poor choices

In California and elsewhere, people who are operating any type of motor vehicle should make responsible choices before getting behind the wheel. Sometimes, car accidents happen due to circumstances beyond the control of anyone involved. Other times, tragedy results when one person has failed to make a smart choice, such as avoiding drugs or alcohol before driving. Such may have been the case in a fatal accident in which one man was killed and several others were injured.

Fatal car accidents sometimes happen in rideshare vehicles

Many California residents use rideshare programs, such as Lyft and Uber, to transport them to and from work, social events or other destinations. Most people using this transportation option likely assume it is a safe way to travel, and certainly for people who have been drinking, it is much safer than getting behind the wheel themselves. However, no matter what safety measures have been taken, sometimes car accidents still happen due to other variables, such as other drivers on the road.

Multi-vehicle car accidents can cause serious damage

Most California drivers understand the importance of paying close attention to one's surroundings while behind the wheel and that speed must be adjusted according to such variables as weather conditions, traffic situations and obstacles of any sort. Drivers who fail to slow down when necessary can sometimes cause car accidents resulting in tremendous damage. Such was the case in a recent multi-vehicle pileup on the San Bernardino Freeway in Claremont that left one person dead and many others injured, some critically.

California car accidents: 2 fatalities in head-on crash

Any person holding a valid driver's licence should know the responsibility that comes with such a document. While on the road, drivers should remember they are in charge of a large piece of machinery that, if not controlled properly, could seriously injure or kill a person. Car accidents can occur in a split second following driver error of any sort. Unfortunately, this may have been what happened when two people died recently in crash on a California roadway.

California intersection has seen several fatal car accidents

Some California residents choose to walk regularly as part of a healthy lifestyle or simply to better see the surrounding sights while enjoying a relaxing leisure activity. Unfortunately, when pedestrians walk a route covering roadways, they must share some of their space with moving vehicles. Sadly, car accidents sometimes result, and typically, the pedestrian does not fare as well as the driver. This is what happened recently on a Fresno road when a man was killed in a hit-and-run accident.

California car accidents may result in multiple fatalities

Unfortunately, some people do not seem to heed the continual warnings in recent years about the dangers of driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. These people will still get behind the wheel of a car no matter what they have been doing immediately prior. Sometimes, auto accidents, whether in California or elsewhere, are caused by such reckless behavior, and sometimes these accidents result in fatalities. Sadly, this was the case when a two-vehicle collision caused four deaths.
